iPad – Data Only January 28, 2010

Filed under: Technology — ilcourtilcourt @ 08:36

Wi-Fi + 3G model

  • UMTS/HSDPA 850, 1900, 2100 MHz
  • GSM/EDGE 850, 900,1800, 1900 MHz
  • Data only
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n
  • Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR technology

Data Only: this is a great disappointment; just as the Fujitsu tablets before it, Apple goes with the easier Data Only limitation.

This means that there is no choice to use only the iPad wherever you go: you need Dual Sim, Dual device (and hopefully not Dual plan). I wanted to be able to take phone call on the iPad (via the headphone+microphone)

Another limitation is the lack of front facing camera “iSight”; with that camera the iPad would be better for my parents than a MacBook.

My guess is that for the moment Apple wants to make sure that the iPad cannot be a primary device.
